Dr John Panneerselvam is a Lecturer in Informatics within the School of Informatics, University of Leicester. John joined the University of Leicester in February 2020, and prior to this John worked as a Lecturer in Computing at the University of Derby. John received the PhD degree in the discipline of Computing and an MSc in Advanced Computer Networks from the University of Derby.


John largely focuses on energy-efficient datacentres through an analytics approach. Datacentres are addressed to be massive energy consumers and environmental polluters. Whilst the energy implications of Cloud datacentres are being addressed from various research perspectives, John focuses on predicting the future trend and behaviours of workloads at the datacentres thereby reducing the active server resources. This involves studying large-scale commercial datacentre trace logs, involving descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics with a range of machine learning and AI techniques. John also works in the areas of Interdisciplinary Analytics, Scheduling and Resource Management in Distributed Datacentres, Internet of Things etc.
